Draft Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy

Tauranga City Council yesterday approved a draft of the Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy 2019 for public consultation. Council is required by law to have a policy on dangerous and insanitary buildings within its district.

To develop the draft policy, council’s current Dangerous, Earthquake-Prone and Insanitary Buildings Policy has been reviewed to: 

  •   •  remove any reference to earthquake-prone buildings, as this is now covered under the Building Act 2004

  •   •  include ‘affected’ buildings within the policy. These are buildings that pose a risk to building users and passers-by because of their proximity to a dangerous or insanitary building.

Council will go to public consultation on the Draft Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy in early September and will be seeking feedback from stakeholder groups.
